From our friends at Asteroid Day comes a great new video addressing a big topic:

Why, exactly, is it that we need more resources — telescopes, equipment, people, etc. — to discover more Near-Earth Asteroids?

Eric Christensen, who is director of the Catalina Sky Survey at the University of Arizona’s Lunar and Planetary Lab, lays out the current status of NEO research and why more is needed.

You’ll enjoy this short video.
